Greetings,

I recently discovered that I have the right to Spanish citizenship, but only after living in Spain for a year. My question is: Has anyone on this forum done this? I haven't been able to find much information online about this process nor the forms. Can anyone on here give some insight into this?

I thought it was quite a complicated and drawn out procedure

The embassy/consulate sites don't have this information. They sent me to the Minister of Justice site, where I couldn't find the information either. From what I understand, you just register once you're in Spain and after a year file the petition before the Presiding Judge of the Civil Registry of my domicile in Spain. I just couldn't find the required documentation nor petition/application form online. I was hoping someone on here had gone through this process or knew someone who had.

I have ABSOLUTELY NEVER heard of this. If the Embassy site does not have it then I suggest you approach the Embassy direct. The Ambassador is Spain's representative in your country. If you can make no progress then I suggest you ask your lawyer.

I would be recovering it from my grandmother, who was originally Spanish. So, back to the topic at hand...

I'm afraid its unlikely any of us would have any knowledge .... you have a claim to it by the sounds of it.

It would be no advantage to me for instance, and of course not having Spanish ancestory would make it a much much harder procedure even if I wanted to do it ... sorry

On the Consulate site (Spanish Consulate in Draycott Place, London) they have a good starter for 10.....

GRANDCHILDREN OF SPANISH NATIONALS (art. 22.2. f) C.C.).- Those persons with a grandmother or grandfather who was originally Spanish may apply for Spanish nationality by means of one year’s legal residence in Spain. This procedure must be initiated by the Head of the Registry Office in the Spanish place of residence, and is resolved by the Ministry of Justice.

So, in theory then, get yourself down to the Registry Office of your Spanish Place of Residence and have the Ministry of Justice resolve it..... take the web page with you in case they don't believe you.

Good hunting - and I suspect, mucha, pero que MUCHA, paciencia.
